Finishing in the top-four matters more than entertaining the fans
It would be easy to brand Arsenal boring after the 1-0 win over Bournemouth but that is a price worth paying for success.
The games against Tottenham and Watford were certainly entertaining affairs but Arsenal collected just a single point from each game. Give me boring and three points any day as opposed to entertaining and one point.
Boring is watching Arsenal in the Europa League, boring is finishing outside the top-four and real boredom is no silverware.
Of course, it would be nice to win and be entertaining like Man City and Liverpool are but we do not have that luxury at Arsenal. The club has to work with what it has got and if they get more success grinding out wins then so be it.
Next season would be unbearable having to watch European football on a Thursday night for the fourth season running. You do not face Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, PSG and Bayern Munich in the Europa League. Anything less is true boredom.
The ultimate goal would obviously be to both entertain and win but when that is not possible then winning must be the priority.
There was a time that Arsenal was a boring club, they wore that branding as a badge of honour and they were winners. Given a choice right now, I would be happy to go back to boring if it means top-four football and silverware.
